My greatest pleasures are reading, writing, and walking anywhere with my camera, trying to capture the world as I really see it. My favorite places  are The Art Institute of Chicago, the Shedd Aquarium, and Notre Dame on a non-football weekend. My favorite book is TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and my favorite painting is Marc Chagall’s WHITE CRUCIFIXION. I love riding trains and hate driving. I love my children and grandchildren beyond belief, and wish I were more like all the wonderful parents I saw on tv when I was a child… don’t we all?
